    This video series is super helpful!! As a climber, I’m really paranoid about injuring my hands and forearms and being forced to stay off the wall to heal. Thank you for making these!

    Climbing is such a beautiful sport, but sometimes the amount and frequency of the injuries associated with it are overlooked. Prevention techniques are always appreciated by climbers

    Climbing is awesome! I am such a visual learner so the video helped me out on this! I can’t wait to try these exercises out and hopefully start doing more climbing in the future!

    How often do you recommend doing these exercises for?

      Generally speaking, you should have at least 1-2 days per week where you are working on self-care / injury prevention for sport.
